16 Blue Ribbons at the Mississippi State Fair!!!














16 Blue Ribbons!!! I couldn't believe it. I won a blue ribbon in every category I entered. 11 tatting categories and 5 crochet.

The tatting categories were: Baby bonnet, Booties, Doily, Runner, Christmas, Collar, Hemstitched, Edging, Pillow, Garter, Misc. (I entered a 3d magnolia).
The crochet categories were: Scarf, Filet, Christmas, Doily and a Misc. category
I plan to add them to my blog and count them toward my 25 motifs.

































The Booties are a pattern by Lenore English done in #30 Flora white, the bonnet is my own design, in #20 Flora, unfortunately I didn't write down the pattern as I worked, time to go back and figure it out (sigh). They are motifs 15 & 16.

Congratulations. Keep up the good work and remember - keep track of the design so we can all make the blue-ribbon pattern.
